Chelsea advanced to the semi-finals 2-1 on aggregate despite losing the last-eight second-leg contest in Seville 1-0 courtesy of substitute Mehdi Taremis sensational late overhead kick.
Tempers flared somewhat after the full-time whistle at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, with the respective coaches and a number of players involved in a brief post-match spat.
Quizzed about that flashpoint in his post-match press conference, Porto boss Conceicao said: I dont know about the reaction, I couldnt quite understand what he [Tuchel] said, he said.
There were some insults, it happened, it was not nice and thats why I was irritated and was worried about my players.
Our defensive performance was wonderful. We limited them as much as we could and we tried to score goals.
We were superior in both matches but we lacked that bit of efficiency.
Im proud of our efforts in the competition overall but obviously not happy, because we have lost.
Meanwhile, Tuchel shrugged off the incident after his side booked a place in the last four of Europes elite club competition, where they will face either LaLiga giants Real Madrid or Premier League rivals Liverpool.
“It was just a little argument with me and their coach, and everybody was following me suddenly,” said Tuchel.
“I thought it was between me and the coach, but obviously it was not so. But no harm done there.”
